Old Fashioned Poppy Seed Cake
Does anyone have a recipe for a poppy seed cake (not lemon)? My grandma, who was german, used to make an icebox poppyseed cake that was delicious. I can't remember if it was cream cheese based, but the frosting was white/vanilla, as was the cake. I remember the cake being so cool, light and delicious. Any ideas?
Baking with Julia has a great poppy seed cake recipe in it. You use leftover cake crumbs and grind the poppyseeds in a coffee grinder.
You can use any kind of crumbs, white or chocolate, but a buttery almond cake ground up and used is really good.
You don't have to frost it, but it would lend itself nicely.
